One question we get asked quite frequently is “Are children welcome at the Southeast Homeschool Expo?”
Our answer?? YES!
We work very hard making the Southeast Homeschool Expo a FAMILY event. Moms, dads, and children are all welcome to attend. Children under 18 can attend FREE with their parents on Friday and Saturday to the Expo Exhibit Hall. There are many activities available for the kids – a game area, a rock climbing wall, exhibitors that have many items available to purchase for your kids, and workshops where children are encouraged to come.
When you take your children with you to any of the workshops, please be mindful of the speakers and other parents. If your child becomes noisy, we ask that you quietly remove them from the workshop.
There are two exceptions to “children are FREE”. One is KidsZone which is only available on Thursday during the Homeschooling for Excellence 101 Conference. The other is the Worldview Teen Track. Both of those events will have a fee.
